DARLING in the FRANXX drew in a lot of attention and hype surrounding its release as one of the first new mainstream Mecha Anime in some time. Whether it lived up to its hype has been a subject of split opinions and much debate. The series is set in a mysterious post-apocalyptic world with many strange creatures, individuals, and structures that invite of lot of questions and curiosity right from the beginning. Its story (its biggest failure according to many) could be described as brilliant until you think about it too much, especially so if you’ve seen other certain Anime that share many a similarity. The characters in this anime and their interactions as a group is what makes this anime worth watching, they’re unique and the series spends a lot of it’s time developing them through its various arcs. You can expect a variety of fan service but you’ll most likely find it easy to become at least a little attached to them. DARLING in the FRANXX also features some vibrant animation and excellent music. The opening is particularly well done. All in all, it’s a show that’s worth a watch for anyone who’s willing to give it a shot.
